You see, about half of the bags in my catalog are based on someone else's design. (Don't worry, the designers are credited on the site, and I have secured licenses needed to make and sell them. I'm not a thief, I promise!) Most of those bags I have put my own touch on. Every one of the six bags is altered in some way. I usually try it the first time their way, and then I see 3-4 changes I want to make to my version of the bag.
One of my goals for P & P is to eventually only offer bags designed by me. I would also love to copyright and sell the patterns for the bags also. I'm currently working on a PDF pattern for the Slouch. I hope to have it available to buy soon. The zipper is a bit challenging to put in, so I am working on a user-friendly way to explain it.
Here are some more shots of this Slouch:
